Garage cieling beams and joist strength

Posted by Darren McLaughlin on December 22nd, 1999 01:29 AM

In a garage I am finishing, there are two 4x4 support poles right in the middle of the 3 car bays. I would like to get rid of them and run a steel beam through the center so it would be entirely open. ANy experince out there in doing something like this.

Secondly, how would I determine if the ceiling joists are spaced properly and strong enough to hold up a drywall ceiling, and attic storage space above?

Tha garage is 30 x 37
